If you are bored with the normal upholstered furniture in the house, then it’s time to change. Meet: resin wicker furniture.
Wait, what exactly is resin wicker?
When it comes down to buying furniture, many readers actually don’t know what the wicker is. It surprises many of them to know that wicker is the name of a weaving process, and not the name of any single material. Wicker furniture is not only applied to natural materials but can be made from any natural or man-made material that is affordable and durable enough to be woven into furniture.
In order to have something that would last longer, furniture manufacturers came up with an alternative: all-weather wicker, or resin rattan wicker. When woven with polyethylene (in our case, it is High-density Polyethylene – HDPE) resin fibers on a sturdy frame, these chairs and tables are made to hold off the elements, time, and use. They also look very similar to the real thing.
What is special about this resin wicker furniture, is that they’re highly versatile: Not only can they be placed outdoor but indoor as well. With the prominent feature being light-weight, each of the furniture pieces can be moved and arranged as flexible as you want.
Resin wicker furniture for your patio
Patio is a word originated from Spain, it describes a courtyard of a house or building. In modern days, a patio is still a courtyard: an open space but it doesn’t have to be surrounded by walls anymore.
The thing that drives us into building an outdoor area is that it’s a place of relaxation that puts us closer to the nature: plants, trees, scented flowers, small garden ponds and outdoor accessories. But you can’t just casually place your sofa or dining set and outdoor table in the patio and proclaim it your new “outdoor room.” It requires some planning before reaching your hand into the pocket and purchase the furniture.
Resin wicker is resistant to weathering. While wood and other similar materials rot if let out in humid weather conditions. Resin wicker tends to be resilient, it can take a shower in the heavy rain or and maintain its shape and color relatively easily under the sun’s strong UV rays.
An additional strength of resin wicker furniture is how easy it is to clean. Because it’s water-resistant, you can easily hose down your resin wicker material and let them dry under the sun. On the other hand, natural wicker lacks the feature of water resistant, you cannot do the same with a rattan chair without causing potential damage. As a result, for those who prioritize convenience above all else, there may be no better choice apart from resin wicker.
Summing up, for patio furniture & garden accessories, from what we’ve mentioned above, this all-weather wicker has great advantages over other traditional material such as wood, aluminium, steel, iron, natural rattan etc. Depending on your preference, you can buy new, used, or vintage resin wicker furniture. It is important to choose furniture that is green and eco-friendly, if possible.
Should i furnish my living room with this outdoor material?
Apparently there’re no rules forbidding you not to furnish your living room with all-weather poly rattan furniture. In fact, this furniture material poses a vintage look that could drive you out of the ordinary upholstered furniture-boredom.
One very clear advantage resin wicker furniture is the versatility of it. This mean, it can often act as “two-for-one” furniture, in that it can be used both indoors as well as outdoors, if you own a resin wicker chair, you can place it anywhere you like: from living room to balcony or even rooftop. And because you generally don’t have to worry about keeping this material in the rain, you don’t always have to hurry inside when you see dark clouds.
About styling, to refresh your living room, you should choose your most expensive or favorite item and work around it. For many people, that item might be the sofa. So, buy the best quality sofa you can afford. A sofa is a big investment and you want it to last. Remember, a sofa of average quality should last at least 10 years while a high-end sofa should last up to 25.
Once the living furniture set is in place, the next step is to think about where to place the accessories. Rugs, throw pillows, and artwork can set the tone of an area. No doubt you will have some window treatments and artwork, and maybe a television. Give just as much thought to placing living room accessories as you do to the furniture.
In choosing the accessories: when it comes to an area rug, you do not want to have one that is too small. This is the biggest mistake people make when decorating living rooms. Make sure that all the pieces of wicker sofa set fit on the rug. Ideally, all four legs of the major pieces should be on it, but if this simply is not possible make sure to fit at least the front legs on the rug (the back legs can be off). But all the legs of smaller pieces should be on the rug whenever possible.
Pillow-wise, use them thoughtfully. Do not go overboard with throw pillows. Choose a few that enhance the piece of furniture and overall look of the room.
Dining with style
In any dining room, the central piece will be the dining furniture set. It is the largest piece of furniture and is generally located in the exact center of the room, where it dictates the style of the room and sets the mood for the dining experience.
